    I hate trying to strengthen one position to weaken another.

    Levi and Griffin work.

    Buher is our fix it so slot him in or cogger.

    If Marshall-King works out for Dogs, cogger is going to be on the back foot again.

    Does anyone really believe Coggers been promised a starting spot right away? His going over there for an opportunity, and is probably on next to nothing as well.

    We have enough second phase with Ponga if required, someone to strengthen the line is a much better fit for where we are at this stage.

    Levi would be a solid mid-game injury cover for 5/8, not sure how he'd go as a starting 5/8. I'd prefer him there over Buhrer though, but can't realistically see either scenario unless we have a catastrophic injury toll

    Little known fact - Levi's first season of NYC for us he played a handful of games as a halfback. He wasn't much good.

    My opinion is that Levi has been our best player for the last 2 games, and Griffin has also been a major contributor in his new role. I don't know why you would change one of the things that is really working well.

    Yes, they wanted him immediately because they didn't rate their current halves options. Dropped Frawley after a couple games for a bench hooker. Whether those circumstances are the same in March 2019 is another story. Cogger would be playing first-grade right now if he was there, but leaving a year down the track will dampen some of the momentum.

    wearing our hi vis strip, once again against the tigers. Would make more sense to use it against any team other than the tigers

    Mate every club who signs someone a year ahead wants them asap, doesn't mean they wanted him as a firstgrader but he certainly would have had the opportunity to put his best foot forward.

    I cannot like that enough. Should have done it after the Dragons debacle.

    I'm up and down on Brown like a yo-yo but he's in the good books today.

    Dean Pay has coached Cogger personally in an Origin camp. Just 2 games into the season, he drops Frawley & replaces him with Marshall-King, a bloke nobody has ever heard of & has only played bench hooker at NRL level. Clearly Pay didn't like his halves options in pre-season, that's why he signed Cogger in the first place & that's why he was hoping for an early release. They didn't get it so had to make do with what they have.

    Does anybody know what our record is when wearing the hi-vis? I can't remember any wins while wearing it.
